Location [APP] ScoreKeeper Plus - a free score keeping app. Could use some feedback!

HI all,

I'm somewhat new here -- been lurking a while, and have recently started posting. Anyways, I recently hit the marketplace with a free app I've developed, ScoreKeeper Plus: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...ft.scorekeeper

In a nutshell, it's a score keeping app, tailored towards board games and the likes, with many uses. Additionally, I've included a few useful utilities for such events -- a highly configurable dice roller and a game timer.

So far, I've received perfect reviews from my modest user-base (~20 users), but I'm looking to grow that and get some feedback to further development.

The app is free and has no ads, so please share with all who may find this useful!

All feedback is HIGHLY appreciated.

- Shane

Why does the app need permission to read contact data on the phone?

The description says why internet access is needed, but the combination of that and reading contact data for an app that doesn't seem to obviously need the phonebook could look suspicious.

Hi sorry, I missed this question. Thanks to the poster above, yes it's to pick player names from your contact list.

The network permission is to pull a message of the day when you first launch the app. The MOTD let's me communicate with my users. It pulls from here: http://android.bammsoft.com/ScoreKeeper/MOTD.txt

On a side note, I'm quite pleased because there's been an explosion of new users, a 700% increase in the past 2 days!

Cheers,
Shane

Just pushed a significant update (1.2.0). I added many translations and completely overhauled the new game screen.

Check it out!

EDIT: It's still propagating through the play store

EDIT 2: Is available now.
